Wedding Dresses for Short Women from Martin Thornburg

At Martin Thornburg, we understand how important it is that you find a wedding dress to match your bridal style that works with your petite frame. We take careful consideration into all of our designs to accommodate short brides, so you never feel that your height is an issue while shopping. No matter what style speaks to you—from all-over lace and breezy bohemian silhouettes to timeless A-line gowns and even intricate, shimmering bead work, we have a wedding dress you'll fall in love with. 


What silhouette works best for short brides?

The answer to this question is complicated: it all depends on what you want your wedding dress to do for you. If you're looking for a dress to slim and elongate your figure, you'll want a sheath dress, which hugs your figure from head to toe to create a gorgeous, long figure. Fit and flare and mermaid shapes work similarly, with the flared skirt adding curves and a touch of drama. If you want classic bridal elegance, A-line dresses are universally flattering, and can make you appear taller with the long, slanted lines of the skirt. Each of these silhouettes work beautifully on petite brides, so there's no worry that you need to just stick to one. 


Wedding dresses for short women we think should be on your radar:

If you're still unsure where to start, we'll give you a few examples of styles we love that work beautifully on short brides. If you like the idea of an elegant, lacy sheath dress to make you appear taller, you'll love Eden, a gorgeous, intricate wedding dress with detachable illusion sleeves. If you're looking for something a bit more sophisticated with a hint of drama, take a look at Benecia, a striking fit and flare with sheer lace panels running down the side. Prefer something more traditional? Odette features floral embroidery on a full A-line skirt for a timeless bridal look that looks incredible on short brides.
